Thumbs up bootmod3 New Feature Release *** OBD Unlock and OFFLINE Flasher ***

Hey guys, some great news we're really happy to share with everyone of the new BM3 features.

OBD Unlock and the new OFFLINE Flasher (flashing without the need for internet, similar to Spotify downloaded songs you can play offline) features are now live in a wider closed beta.

If you’d like to participate in this closed beta testing round let us know through our tech support portal as we’re doing it one car at a time and enable access to the feature on a per user account basis.

To get started make sure to download the new OBD Agent version 0.9.42. iOS and Android apps aren’t updated yet so you’d need to use a laptop for this round of testing.

Overview of what’s been covered:

OBD Unlock:
- New convenience option to unlock your DME and tune the car with BM3. The previous bench type unlock is still fully supported.
- Unlock DME without pulling it out of the car or sending out for unlock
- NO SPECIAL CABLES or hardware required. Uses the same ENET cable still that you can get on Amazon for around $16-20. No waiting time for special cables to be shipped or waiting on us to ship them as they're available through Amazon
- Instant activation and OTS map download! No waiting after purchase
- OBD unlock for new cars/install time around 260 seconds start to finish instead of 10-50minutes with other F series tuning solutions.
- Revert back to Stock and locked. No chance of tamper code showing once flashed back.
- No flash counter limitations - our dev cars have been flashed well over 1000 times. This has always been a BM3 feature.
- Flash date freeze - unique BM3-first feature, no other tool supports today. Flash date never changes when flashing with BM3.
- Flash counter freezes after OBD unlock

OFFLINE Flasher:
- Flash without internet access
- Fastest flash time on F series platform. ~260secs for unlock flash, ~40secs for just a map switch! Others using USB/DCAN cables take 4-5x longer such as tuners using rebranded Frieling (FRC) USB cables and Bimmergeeks or similar USB/DCAN cables with OTG adapters used by some Android apps.
- Twin DME cars (N63tu and S63tu) flash at the same time and in parallel and take the same time as single DME cars to flash. Other tools using USB/DCAN cables can only do one at a time due to limitations in connectivity pushing the initial install time and map switch time to well over an hour or 18mins for a simple map switch!
- No special cables, hardware Or additional software required, just the standard ENET BMW coding cable that you can get on Amazon for around $16-20.
- Whether using iOS and Android apps or just a laptop with a browser, maps are downloaded locally and flashed with no internet connection required. Flashing in remote areas, underground garages, bad wifi, is a non-issue.
- Manages map updates automatically in case of tuning (custom) updates and downloads them prior to flashing without users needing to worry about managing it and you can save your downloaded map files anywhere you like (google drive, dropbox, iCloud, etc for backup if you like)
- Backs up existing DME coding data automatically without users having to worry about it like with other tools and automatically re-applies it after flashing
- The original online-type flasher for the DME stays in place as a secondary option through testing
- TCU flashing (GTS flash) requires internet access still but we're looking to move it into offline mode as well.

Some dev work that’s still in progress that we’d like to finish this week:
- Add obd unlock support for N20, N63tu and the rest of N55. Very quick to do and we expect to finish it this week.
- Update flash screen with new progress bars with time estimate countdown
- OTS Map updates and new additions to the OTS Maps screen across all F series
- Finalize closed beta testing of the above 2 new features

There is no additional cost to the end user for any of these features and it is bundled in the cost of a BM3 software license along with all existing features already provided.

I have had an instance where the dealer flash my DME and I had to go get it unlocked again at my tuner. Can I use the ODB2 unlock if it happens again and will it support my existing custom tunes?

So just to be clear one would only have to pay the $595 plus the cable. And that includes an OBD flash no DME removal and a OTS map?

Will there be a Burble option?

1) Yes

2) Burble are included in STG2 OTS Maps (can be turned on/off on Map Request)
Also they will be working on more development as time goes; allowing user to toggle the Burble via the App.

Does the car's individual stock dme file get stored when unlocking via obd2 and that is what the stock map flashes back to, or is it a generic stock map? (as i have mmpk and am wondering if i swithc form bm3 ots maps back to stock will my mppk still be there?)

Also, is there any benefits of bench flash over obd2 now that the flash counters arent affected and no tamper codes?

Research....Research.....Research

I'm partial to PTF's bm3 due to it's flexibility, tuner network and constant game changing/first to market capabilities...

Anyone currently on bm3 know if there's exhaust valve control (stock / mpe)?

If yes- is it quick/easy to open/return to auto?

Can be done in the app while you drive.
